joy reid, all yours. >> leave it to ari to bring back eddie murphy. >>> president obama is making a list, and he's checking it twice. >> this is the defining challenge of our time. making sure our economy works for every working american. that's why i ran for president. the basic bargain at the heart of our economy. this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country. a child may never be able to escape poverty, because she lacks a decent education or health care. that should offend all of us. what drives me is a grandson, a son, a father, an american, is to make sure that every striving, hard-working, optimistic kid has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. dr. king once said, of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as
are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too much for those who are in need. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from ken
of obama care, providing 40 million americans with insurance coverage. instead you have rush limbaugh saying that the pope is a marxist. has he ever read the bible? talks so much about caring for the poor. caring for people in need. it even says it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than a rich person to go to heaven. that doesn't matter to seem people on the right. their christianity is their own form. and that concerns me. >> that is the point. josh, at the end of the day, what rush limbaugh is attacking the pope for is espousing the very things jesus said in the bible. suddenly this is marxism? haven't they sort of really gone around the bend if they're going to attack, a., an important religious leader in the world and basket, somebody talking about what their value supposedly espoused, christian tanty. >> i think there is room for disagreement among christians about economic policy and about, you know, the extent to which we have a responsibility to use the government to reduce income inequality. so i don't think you have to agree with the pope on this if yo
president obama. one of the things we'll look at is mandela's relationship with american presidents. both starting with the anti-apartheid movement. also once he became a president. his work with bill clinton, his work with george w. bush. he would tangle with presidents. he was a very fierce critic of president bush on the issue of the iraq war. but also worked closely with him on the issue of aids. and he was also a great consoler of president clinton in his toughest times of the impeachment trial as well. we're going to look at all that today. also look at the -- really talk to some people who knew him very, very well. the human rights lawyer who helped draft a constitution of south africa. his pollster in the presidential elections. we're trying to look at the politician and his impact on american politics. >> and not to take away from his amazing accomplishments as the president of south africa, but the country is still plagued by problems, economic and racial. >> even though they are coming together and all coming together for nelson mandela, you have economic inequality. social ine
of the revelation of the snowden documents. but the fisa court has more to do with americans than you might think. >> host: since 2001, has the patriot act, the fisa surveillance, increased or decreased? >> guest: yeah. it's a great question. i think it's actually been increased. when president obama was a candidate, when he was running for office, he said no more national security that spy on americans. but now that he's president i think he sees the power differently. and he felt if he can be trusted with the dragnet powers. it sounds as if the fisa court allowed actually is an expansion and there's more and more material being collected in bulk and that what is being collected under the foreign intelligence surveillance act even though on americans has also increased. i think there's a possibility for another increase. for awhile until 2011, the government was also collecting e-mail addresses, internet dresses that we visit, the fisa court authorized that. and the government actually stopped collecting all of that information in 2011. but they could do it again because they're authorized to do
. revisiting the theme of economic fairness and fair shake for american worker, this weekend president obama urged congress to extend these benefits. >> these are people we know. they are our friends and our neighbors. they sit next to us in church and volunteer in our communities. their kids play with our kids. they include 20,000 veterans who serve this country with honor. >> but reminding them of the american social compact hasn't lately been enough to sway republicans and certainly doesn't seem to be doing so now. appearing on abc, gop senator rob portman acted as if helping unemployed was some kind of strange exotic government activity that didn't belong in normal funding discussions. >> $25 billion no one was talking about until the last week, so it's an additional cost within this budget agreement. i think the thought was this would be handled separately. >> but as usual on the subject of fairness, no republican can out-republican kentucky senator rand paul. >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to t
.gov president obama somewhat ironically is now urging young americans to grow up to become computer programmers. >> no one's born a computer scientist but with a little hard work and some math and science just about anyone can become one. this week is your chance to give it a shot. and don't let anyone tell you can't. >> reporter: the president says programing skills are important for our country's future. heather? heather: as witnessed by the obamacare website rollout. thank you, peter. we appreciate it. bill: here's a question, was it murder or an accident? a newlywed accused pushing her husband over a cliff at one of our more famous national parks. jury selection begins today so the question there is, what is her defense? heather: plus president obama suggesting extending benefits to the long-term unemployed, but, does this actually hurt those who are out of work more than it helps? our panel debates. >> when you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy and it really, while it seems good, it
think about it, it's this nation's first african american president offering sentiments about south africa's first black president, clearly tied together by their roles in history and connected a number of times in person, the obama family connecting with mandela's family in south africa. again you're looking right now outside of nelson mandela's home in johannesburg where people have gathered to remember, to reflect upon the life of the man they call madeva. he is the father of modern south africa, dead at 95. >> interestingly right now a lot of south africans are asleep because it is past midnight in south africa. so they're going to wake up to this news. those who have heard, many of them, probably heard on social media. we saw some reports on twitter and facebook earlier and i want to bring in russ ptacek now who has been sort of monitoring some of the comments that some people have left. what are you finding? >> a man known for so many sayings that touched so many and at the moment this news was breaking around the world and our newsroom was scurrying the nelson mandela founda
. richard fowler joins us, democratic strategist. the entire financial structure of obama care is contingent on young people enrolling to subsidized higher health care costs for, of course, older, circumstancer americans. if a scant 22% of young americans say they're going to enroll but almost half say forget about it. what does that do to the viability of obama care? could it fail? >> it destroys it. the math zdoesn't work. the president is requiring the youth to be the back stop for those who need care now. it's like when social security was founded back 70-plus years ago. seven people payed in for every one person paying out. they needed the workers, the young workers paying in to pay for those who needed the retirement. same thing with obama care. it's all premised under young people, healthy people paying who don't need services. the young people are say, look, we don't have a monthe money, w don't have the job. youth is suffering twice the unemployment rate as everybody else in the country. if you can pay a $95 fine to get away from the $1800 liability, of course they're not going to d
and wife laura joining president obama and first lady. the group is part of a long list of american and international dignitaries, one that includes former presidents clinton and carter on hand for a massive public memorial tomorrow with a crowd of nearly 100,000 expected to attend. nbc's ron aless than is live in soweto, south africa with more. ron, we learned today president obama will be speaking tomorrow. what can we expect to hear at that address? >> well, i would imagine his remarks will be very personal. as you know, he has a very close relationship with nelson mand a mandela. their lives are intertwined. mr. obama has said that his first political act as an individual was in support oh of the anti apartheid movement, which mr. mandela, of course, was leading. so there's that. we expect that this could be one of the largest gatherings of heads of states ever together assembled in one place. it's an event that will perhaps rival the funeral of pope john paul ii back in 2005. some 3 million converged upon the vatican. the numbers here at the football stadium where the main eve

handed back to his father. he doesn't forgive his american relatives for trying to keep him in the u.s. and calls for president obama to lift the embargo. >> protesters prepare to take to the streets on monday in thailand. in the past it may have let the military to seize power. veronica pedrosa has more on the choice based on the thai military. >> thailand's military on felt opportunity duty. that parade is part of celebrations for the kings birthday. the military and monarchy, two institutions, both centre stage and behind the scene. now people in bangkok are once again seeing scenes of violence like this. the question being asked: is thailand's military prepared to stage another kout deta, it would be the 12th. the headquarters are surrounded by protesters. the soldiers are staying in their barracks. it could be a transformative moment in thai politics. whatever decision the army takes about what to do next could be the crucial factor. what the military wants is a matter of debate. we spoke to a top security official. he told us some protesters are soldiers. did you say some prote
. michael erik dyson, you met him. so many american political activists really cut their teeth fighting for nelson mandela. >> no question. i'm of the same generation of president obama. and taking a stand against apartheid in the university community and more broadly in terms of dealing with the disinvestment strategies. also challenging ronald reagan's engagement approach. i think conservatives get amnesia here when they forget that dick cheney wanted to put him on the terrorist list and insisted he stay there. that ronald reagan resisted. he said on the one hand that else in. mandela should be released, but he depended on a white supremacist government to reform itself from within. >> and the issue, mar where? >> when will you ever get tired of beating up on darth vader, who said nelson mandela is a good man. as we saw in the earlier segment, it was a complicated situation. the anc was a terrorist organization at one point. he has since said great things about nelson mandela. i like that what's been said about nelson mandela is said in the same way the pope said what he did. forgiven
the deadline they had set for themselves. absolutely. obama care has not been good for hispanics and think about states like california, tucker. states like florida which are dropping millions of people, a lot of americans are losing their health care insurance. those two states have a big hispanic population. >> my impression of the white house strategy on winning back hispanics support has been always to say look at the republicans, they hate you. you got to continue to be the strategy. >> yeah. i think so. even on immigration, tucker. hispanics are just -- are just not buying this line any more that progress is not being made on immigration because of republicans. just think about how the president, from the very beginning said look if i don't get 100% on immigration i want nothing. for a lot of hispanics they are questioning that. why just a few weeks ago the president finally said you know what? to do this step by step on immigration and not try to do one big bill given the fact that obama care has been such a disaster in terms of doing this all in one big piece. >> getting what you w
straight from the obama administration. joining us to weigh in is al from the american eagle foundation and challenger, the bald eagle. good morning to you. >> hey, good morning, steve. how are you today? >> i'm doing okay, although i'm a little puzzled by this new thing that the obama administration has finalized, a rule to give energy companies permits for wind farms that wind up killing bald eagles. explain how this would work. >> first off, i think this is appalling and outrageous. i don't think it's good conservation policy. i think this is a lot of politics and believe me, i educate people on both sides of the aisle. i've been saving eagles for over 30 years. it took us over 30 years to bring the eagle back from the brink of extinction, a lot of work by hundreds of conservation groups and thousands of individuals across the country that put their heart and soul. and to do this, to give power companies a 30-year hunting license essentially to kill eagles and other birds is -- i think we're opening a pandora's box that will kill millions of birds over the next 30 years. tens of mill
